Hi all,

I’m getting in touch to share some information about an upcoming webinar on KBase - A knowledge base for systems biology. I am sharing this through a few different channels so thank you for your patience if you’ve seen this already.

KBase is a free, open source, software and data science platform (hosted in the US but available to all) that is designed to meet the grand challenge of systems biology: predicting biological function. It integrates a variety of data (e.g. from the US Department of Energy Genomics Programs and elsewhere) and analysis apps (e.g. for genome assembly and annotation, comparative genomics and microbiome analysis) into an easy-to-use platform that leverages scalable computing infrastructure. See how it’s being used to support various challenges by reading the narratives listed here

The webinar is being hosted by the Australian BioCommons and will take place at 9am AEST, 22 September. This webinar will provide an overview of the KBase, the user community, as well as a tour of the online platform and basic functionality including ways to link environment and measurement data to sequencing data.

Thanks and hope to see you there,
